The Oyster 3 Essential 5-piece Bundle includes a carrycot and car seat adaptors with your pushchair, as well as an infant carrier and ISOFIX base.
When using the Oyster 3 from birth, you use the included carrycot on your pushchair chassis. Coming in the same choice of fabrics as your pushchair, it’s packed full of features to make those newborn days easier. It’s a good size as well as deep, so baby is kept nicely sheltered and cocooned. It’s really simple to remove with just one hand – just pull the lever at the back of the hood and lift with the handle. The carrycot can also be placed on the floor, either rocking gently or if you pop out the small feet underneath it will keep it stable.
Once baby reaches 9kg or is able to sit up (around 6 months) you will want to move on to the seat unit. The seat unit does have a lie-flat recline so is also suitable from birth should you need it.
The BabyStyle Oyster 3 Mercury City is suitable right up to 20kg, which is great compared to lots of strollers only tested to 15kg. The harness, hood and headrest are all connected and adjust simultaneously by squeezing the buttons at each side of the hood. They can then be moved up and down together to adjust the height needed, much better than having to re-thread!
The hood is large and features an additional section that can be unzipped for great coverage. There is also a flip-out sun visor at the front and it offers UPF50+ protection. The canopy has a ventilation section towards the back, which is really useful in hotter weather, and can also be used as a peek-a-boo window. The hood is finished with a metal trim to coordinate with the pushchair chassis.
The calf-rest at the bottom of the seat can be propped up for younger babies and nap times or lowered back into position to accommodate an older child. Underneath the calf-rest there is a zip-open pocket, ideal for small essentials or an insect net accessory.
The detachable leatherette bumper bar is gate opening and swings out of the way easily when getting baby in and out. The seat unit can be attached both parent and world facing and it is so easy to remove it from the chassis. Simply pull the handle strap in the base of the seat with one hand and lift up!
Large with chrome effect rims, the wheels have rubber feel tyres that are foam filled. Durable and puncture proof, they offer a smooth ride with the built in, all round suspension. The front wheels swivel or can be locked in to position for rougher terrain using the handy switch at the bottom of the footrest. The brake is right in the centre of the rear wheel axle and is easy to pop on and off with a touch of your toes.
The shopping basket is a really good size and there is plenty of space to slide shopping bags in and out with ease. There’s also a netted pocket towards the front which is perfect for a raincover.
The handlebar is a telescopic and adjusted using a central one-handed squeeze button. It is covered in leatherette that adds to the overall appearance.
Included in your bundle are the Oyster 3 universal car seat adaptors. As well as lots of different types of infant carrier, these adaptors allow you use the BabyStyle Capsule in this bundle on your pushchair chassis as part of a travel system. The Capsule can be installed using the car’s seat belt or on the included Duofix Isofix Base. The Capsule is used rear facing and is suitable from 40cm – 83cm, which is around birth to 15 months old.
